How to Find a Modeling Agency

A modeling agency works as a representative or agent of models to find work for them. Due to the nature of the fashion industry, it is difficult to find your own clients, or work as a freelancer, so an agency becomes very important for the success of the models.
Most agencies are small businesses run by industry veterans, who employ agents who actually interact between a model and the clients she works for. Each agent may have several models that they can handle.

From Christy Turlington to Kate Moss, they have handled a lot of models and supermodels. Here are some tips on how to find an agency that will help you launch your career.
Tips for finding a modeling agency

Look for an agency in the fashion capitals of the world. Cities like Milan, Paris, New York, London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Rome, etc., have many fashion agencies and designers who need their services. If you are not a catwalk or a fashion model, you can find agencies in relatively small cities as well.
Open casting calls are casting events where agents are looking for new faces. Attending these open casting calls is a great way to contact agents.
If you are a veteran model, you should use the network of contacts and references to get an agency. Contact your old clients and others in the industry you know about their requirements, and ask for a reference from the modeling agents they work with.
Beware of scammers and deception agencies. Always read your contract carefully before signing on the dotted line.
